New Akrapovic Full System for the Zed !!!

Postby Maccarocks » Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:58 pm

Hey all...

Well its starting to get a bit cold and wet, so might as well get some more mods done in preperation for better weather in a few months...!! So I have just finished fitting a full Akrapovic twin system to the Z1000...

Weight loss of over 12 kilos and Horsepower gain of over 11.5 !!!! Win Win....

What can you say about how good Akrapovic engineering is... perfect fit everytime... Love it

More performance mods to come... :kuda:

Hi Dave...

I will be running a power commander, I just dont have it installed as yet.... I do have a Dynojet 02 fuel optimiser for this model ... so when I get everything I will get it fitted and mapped to suit...

Are you running something similar on yours..??

Also I have decided to re spring the rear shock.. just to take away that harshness.. The spring weight is just too hard for my weight...

I know the valving is not really great either... but I just need to soften the rear up a bit more... it really affects the front end handling...

Macca :D

I agree, there is nothing like an Akra :kuda: , I love my 4-1 on the Z.

I couldn't handle the woeful OE shock any longer, got and Ohlins from Race Dynamics and a new world of lunacy has become available as a consequence :lol:
